5 Muay Thai Pad Work Combination Drills for Elite Fighters

Although Muay Thai is Muay Thai, there are a huge variety of styles and approaches to be found within the coaching of it implemented across the world. Muay Thai pad work then is something that can be done in a number of different ways. Freestyle pad work, where the pad man leads by flashing pads or attacking, creates reactions in the fighter to help both his offensive and defensive strategies. Drill combination pad work is where the pad holder seeks to create a set sequence of skills or attacking/defensive mechanics in the fighter. Both have their place in the development of any would be fighter. Each individual coach or instructor though often has preferences for which they prefer to do most.
